Photo walk in Almonte

Yesterday, my dear friend Nancy invited me out for a photo walk in nearby Almonte, Ontario.  I hadn't been there in quite some time, but she talked about having lunch at this adorable tearoom that she knew I would love.  I discovered yesterday that often one doesn't have to travel very far to in search of the perfect photo opportunity.  Sure, Paris is lovely but I'd have to argue Almonte is too.  Here are some of my favourites from yesterday.  

First from the Robin's Nest Tea Room.  While everything was absolutely delicious, the highlight was the Maple Blueberry Creme Brûlée.  It was amazing.  

And I loved how many interesting shops and cafe's there were.  The town had a quaint feeling very unlike Barrhaven where I currently reside. 

And finally, I couldn't help but make an environmental portrait of a couple of charming shop owners.
